Meek Mill released from jail after five months ‘nightmare’

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Meek Mill has been released from prison – five months after being sentenced for breaking the terms of his probation.

“While the past five months have been a nightmare, the prayers, visits, calls, letters and rallies have helped me stay positive,” he said in a statement.

The 30-year-old was due to serve between two and four years but a court granted him bail due to the “credibility” concerns of a witness.

Beyonce, Jay-Z and comedian Kevin Hart were part of a campaign to free him.

On Twitter @MeekMill shared: 

Just hours after being released the rapper attended a basketball game in his home city of Philadelphia.

He was given the honour of ringing the ceremonial Liberty Bell which signals the start of the game.
